Despite some budget woes members of the Alvaton Fire Department still fund raise anyway they can.

$2,575 raised by the volunteer department was matched by Modern Woodmen of America for up to $2,500.

A check was presented to the department today for $5,075.

Officials from Modern Woodmen say the donation shows just how vital volunteer fire departments are.

"They are serving us and it's volunteer I mean we really need to support them. We need to come out and give them anything we can afford to give them and show them what they mean to us," says Marilyn Deweese.

This year in South Central Kentucky the group has donated more than $1 million to needy organizations.
